Full title: "I Saw What You Did And I Know Who You Are" (1965)

It's a William Castle film.

Please, does anyone know? I ask because "The House on Haunted Hill" is PD...

Thank you again, k-otic! :)
May I please have the URL of the site on which you found the copyright information?
I've been checking at http://cocatalog.loc.gov/, but (as you've no doubt noticed) with limited success.

to get a better (more narrow) result at http://cocatalog.loc.gov you have to click on Set search Limits and choose Motion Pictures or what ever type of work you are looking for

That's what I don't understand, k-otic: I did just that. So why did you get a completely different result than I?????

Not only that, but it me gave copyright information for Carnival of Souls (twice), but no one else could possibly be getting the same result!

oops! I almost forgot!
I have a cuople of films on this request list:

You have to search for all titles of the movie to be sure
The best way to find all titles you can check IMDB.com

About the tricky question "can i upload the movie "xyz" YES or NO?"
I´ve not the knowlege nor the possition of saying whether or not it is okay to upload a certain title i can only show you the "tricks" i use to find out about the copyright status of a movie
If you can say that you did all research possible and everything says it is in the public domain.. go ahead .. but it`s your decision

or simple .. it`s easier for me to say NO than to say YES

Look, all I've been doing is following the advice given in the IA FAQs, to wit: when in doubt, post a question to the movie forum before uploading a film.
If you feel the wording of this FAQ puts you on the spot, I suggest you ask them to change it.

or simple...it's easiest of all for you to not reply to posts asking for help.

It's also MUCH simpler and easier for me to STOP asking for help and to STOP uploading films here, and that's what I'm going to do.

It looks like he's provided you with a lot of help. He's checked one of the titles for you and given you suggestions for finding the other information. I'm not sure what part of this offends you, I'm sure k-otic has other things to do and he isn't paid for his time here.

maybe Plan 9 have not read the other post with the same topic and that`s why he`s so mad at me

How to do an copyright research (the k-otic way)

1st:
I check all information about a Movie at http://www.imdb.com like the list of variant names, director and cast to make sure that the results of my futher search concerning the same movie

2nd:
I check the title with all of this sites

http://www.millcreekent.com
http://www.buyoutfootage.com
http://filmchest.com
http://www.desertislandfilms.com

these are sites of major Public Domain distributors who have other (better) ways to check the copyright status of a movie (at least that is what i hope)

When i can find the title at at least two of those sites i go on to check it with http://cocatalog.loc.gov just to be sure there is no renewed copyright notice there.

But all of these research is just an 99% insurance that the movies is really in the public domain and thats why i nor anyone alse with a right mind can say YES go upload a certain title

for example it can be that those PD distributors use all the same source of information and this source is wrong

so if you are going to upload a movie here and you have checked it in all possible ways there is still a small risk .. and this risk is yours to take ..





... and stop being mad at me ... i don`t like it when someone is mad at me :)
